What horrors await you inside the Arkham Hunting Lodge?
A game designed for Ectocomp 2012, and inspired by the likes of Hunt the Wumpus. Placed third.

I've uploaded a new version of the game which eliminates all the bugs I was aware of, tweaks the scoring system, and improves the writing.
I also added an ABOUT section players can access once they win the game, which gives a little director's commentary.

Worth noting for Twine fans and developers alike: this game takes full advantage of the tool's variable-setting functions, with a small virtual inventory needed to advance the story, simulated turn-based events (e.g. (Spoiler - click to show)countdown that decreases by 10 seconds each click), and a monstrous pursuer that moves about in (randomized?) wumpus-style fashion. With all the conditions in play, it truly shows off the mechanical possibilities of the authoring system, beyond the obvious CYOA type functions.
I admit that I still haven't beaten the game yet. But I don't need to -- I already recognize how satisfying it is, even when it ends in death-by-creature or (Spoiler - click to show)a fiery, explosive demise.
Most of this game is navigating a house while a mysterious being also does so. You have to avoid, destroy, and escape.
Over all, it was well done, but I never really got into it. The room descriptions were fairly amusing.

A tongue-in-cheek graphic text adventure/point and click adventure hybrid. You are a chivalrous knight attempting to save a princess; your quest takes you through a mad-cap Douglas Adams-style world.

Calm down. All you have to do is write a thousand words and everything will be fine. And you have all day, except it's already noon. [blurb from IF Comp 2008]
